Project WikiLoop is an engineering effort initiated by Google engineers, based on Google's big data resources, to contribute knowledge to open knowledge ecosystems such as Wikipedia, adhering to Wikipedia community policies. Search engines have been relying on the health of the open knowledge world, most notably Wikipedia. Yet there are few established efforts to allow continuous contributions of knowledge back to the Wikimedia ecosystem. Project WikiLoop, which was initiated by a engineers at Google, aims at rethinking our efforts in making more knowledge more accessible to the open knowledge ecosystems.
In this talk at WikiConference North America, we will share with the audience for the first time our journey of building the first a few sub projects about WikiLoop, the ups and downs, laughter and tears and the lessons learnt along the journey.
